Question Vista & Garrys mod

Right.... iv recently installed vista ultimate and Iím very addicted to Garryís mod at the moment BUT, On some maps my fps will randomly shoot down to less than 10FPS and when I look in a different direction or at the ground it will shoot back up again, Iím running a 8800GTX so itís not lack of graphics power I was just wondering if anyone has had or got this problem. My GFX drivers are the latest and Garryís mod is up to date. Iím thinking itís a simple compatibility problem that will be fixed with upcoming drivers and updates, I was just curious as to weather Iím not alone! Also if anyone is having this problem with any other games please let me know especially games such as CS: Source and half-life 2/episode 1 seen as they run on the same engine. Thanks for any help

YES, I have that same problem. But today I just downloaded some new drivers. 100.65, but I havent tried playing any games yet. But that was the same problem I was having on battlefield 2142. I'll go try it and get back to you.

I don't know about all the drivers, because I just don't pay attention to those, but downgrade to the latest STABLE drivers.


And out of curiosity, how do you plan on making this more public?

Dont worry bout performance problems and vista. They go hand in hand and will do until better third party drivers r made. Only way u r going to enjoy ur card properly is on xp! until Nvidia get their fingers out and make decent drivers, this is the only reason im not on vista, i tried it and my card sucked big time. SLI wont even work for non 8800 series cards. 8800 is designed for vista and even those dont work properly lol.

Couldn't have said it better myself..I would definately wait at least 6 months if your a gamer and using Vista..
